My soul, to God return

My soul, to God return

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 My soul to God return,
And seek his gracious face;
Well I deserve to sigh and mourn,
Who have abus'd his grace.

2 I lived unconcern'd,
Without a serious thought;
Tho' oft I was reprov'd and warn'd,
Yet I obeyed not.

3 How could it ever be,
That God should e'er forgive;
Astonishing it is to me,
That I am spar'd to live.

4 The blood of Jesus cried,
Thy mercy Lord reveal;
For such I bled, for such I died,
To keep them out of hell.
